La Liga: Suarez nets 4 as Barcelona destroy Gijon

Spanish champions Barcelona have regained first position in the La Liga table courtesy of a 6-0 win over relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon at Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi sent the Catalan giants into a 12th-minute lead on home soil, but it took Luis Enrique’s side until the 63rd minute to double their lead.

Luis Suarez scored four times in total in the second period – including twice from the penalty spot – while Neymar also got his name on the scoresheet with a late spot kick as Sporting fell apart in the latter stages.
